Timbakote Timber Pro for Shadowclad Natural
Timbakote Timber Pro is a semi-transparent waterbased acrylic stain coating that protects and enhances the natural beauty of timber.
Timber Pro is a tough 100% acrylic coating designed for New Zealand’s harsh conditions offering good resistance to the effects of sun and weather. Timbakote complies and is licensed by Environmental Choice New Zealand.
Sharp edges must be sanded, nail holes and minor defects to be filled with suitable timber filler tinted to the same colour as the timber substrate.
Exposed Timber (greater then one week), remove any contamination; loose timber fibres and treat with Moss & Mould wash. Coat as per new timber.
Previously oiled or stained timber: remove all poorly adhered coatings, sand and treat with a Moss & Mould wash. All sharp edges of timber must be sanded to create a rounded edge for better adhesion. All nail holes and minor defects to be filled with suitable timber filler tinted to the same colour as the timber substrate.
Apply Timbakote Timber Pro to one board at a time; lay off in long even strokes along the board’s length working to natural breaks in the cladding. Always keep a wet edge to avoid lap marking. Highly exposed aspects will require an additional coat for extra protection due to extreme weathering. Apply the final coats of Timbakote Timber Pro after the cladding has being fixed to the wall.
Timbakote recommends colours with an LRV of 40% plus for maximum durability.
If using more then one container of Timbakote make sure all containers are mixed together prior to application. Thinning is not generally recommended, as it can be detrimental to the coating performance. The addition of 50mils of water maybe required in hot weather or when coating absorbent surfaces.
If precoating Shadowclad prior to installation do not allow the sheets to be stacked together without plastic film between the sheets.
Timber Dressed 7 - 12 sqm per Litre
The general dry times at a spreading rate of 6-12 sq metres per litre are:
Touch Dry 20 minutes
Re-Coat Time 2 hours
Curing Time 7 days
A patchy, thin, faded and uneven appearance or eroded coating on edges indicates the need for recoating. Bandsawn ply and exposed timber will move with the seasonal wet and dry action of the weather.
Highly exposed areas may require an additional coat after 18-36 months to maintain the coating integrity due to movement of the substrate or checking which can be exacerbated by darker colours. For this reason lighter colours are recommended by Timbakote Coatings Ltd.
A wash down on an annual basis with a Moss and Mould wash will help with the long-term maintenance of your coating.
Moderately irritating to eyes - wear splash proof goggles. Flush eyes immediately with plenty of water if coating splashes to the eyes occurs. If discomfort persists seek medical attention.
Keep out of children’s reach. Ingestion; Give 1-3 cups of water and seek medical attention.
VOCs 6 grams per litre. Environmental Choice New Zealand approved product.
